Innovyze Announces SCADAMaster for Smart Water Grids, Enabling Real-Time Management and Viewing of SCADA Information - New Product Allows Users to Seamlessly Connect Telemetry Data to Their Innovyze Product Suites

Broomfield, Colorado USA, December 18, 2012Innovyze, a leading global innovator of wet infrastructure modeling and simulation software and technologies, today announced the worldwide release of SCADAMaster. This new real-time network data management tool for water distribution and sewer collection systems turns traditional offline analyses into extremely accurate, high-fidelity online network simulations — giving utilities the most cost-effective way of viewing and synthesizing SCADA and other real time telemetry data with network modeling and other enterprise applications.

Despite the widespread availability and use of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) or equivalent telemetry systems, water distribution and sewer collection network models are not continuously updated with real-time field data and their applications are generally confined to offline analyses. While these analyses can provide useful information for network design and long-range capital planning applications, they lack the predictive accuracy critical for operational and emergency event management. SCADAMaster provides accurate network performance and operational information from real-time data enabling control room operators to quickly and reliably assess the integrity of the network and respond to upsets, failures, and other non-routine situations.

SCADAMaster extends the utility of smart network modeling to encompass real-time, field data driven simulations and predictive forecasting capabilities. It can be configured in a “read only” mode or one that enables bidirectional communication. When used in conjunction with IWLive and BalanceNet, the solution suite can provide optimized control schemes to the control room for operational review, or send them directly to the SCADA system. This powerful setup enables problems to be detected before they become events, and reduces the risk of system or performance failure.

SCADA systems give utilities real time information about the status of their collection and distribution systems. Most SCADA systems are optimized to provide fast and reliable data directly to the control room — not to the planning level for decision support. SCADAMaster fills this void by cost effectively linking via an OPC UA/DA client to an existing OPC Server via a secure connection and warehousing the data in a configurable SQL Server relational database. SCADAMaster users decide which tags are polled and at what frequency, and are free to design a data warehouse that best fits their organizational needs. (OPC is the most widely used standard for collaboration by a number of leading worldwide automation suppliers working in cooperation with Microsoft. Originally based on Microsoft’s OLE COM [component object model] and DCOM [distributed component object model] technologies, OPC was created to facilitate interoperability by defining a standard set of objects, interfaces and methods for process control and manufacturing automation applications.)

SCADAMaster opens new doors to operational- and engineering-level integration throughout the utility organization,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., BCEEM, Hon.D.WRE, Dist.D.NE, F.ASCE, President and Chief Operating Officer of Innovyze. “This critical software tool will allow utilities to cost effectively bring the power and accuracy of real-time field data to their water enterprises and jumpstart smart water projects, making the distribution and collection of water more efficient and reliable. It’s another step in our ongoing commitment to delivering superior value to our customers who plan, design, manage, operate, and sustain safe, reliable water and wastewater infrastructure systems.”
